If you would like to make a regular donation, you can do so very simply using a Standing Order. A Standing Order places you in control of the amount you donate. It is an instruction from you, to your bank, to pay a set amount, at regular intervals, either for a specific period of time or until you cancel it.
To set-up a regular standing order, please complete and return this form to firstname.lastname@example.org: Standing Order Form
You can also set up ‘regular’ donations via Paypal or JustGiving. See the relevant section for details.

Give as You Live is a platform that allows you to simply donate every time you shop online. You don’t pay anything extra, you simply make your purchase, and a percentage of the sale is made as a donation to us. Give as You Live is a very effective way of supporting our charity. Register at: https://www.giveasyoulive.com/signup/choose-charity and simply search for ‘Wirral Churches Ark Project’.
The Government operates a scheme called Gift Aid that allows charities to claim the basic tax rate on every pound donated. So, for example if you donated £100 to Wirral Ark, it means that you’ll actually be giving us at least £125.
Giving under Gift Aid means that so much more money can be raised at no extra cost to our donors.
For individuals, the Gift Aid rules require the completion of a Gift Aid Declaration Form. This provides us with the minimum information required for us to be able to claim Gift Aid on a donation.
Please return completed Gift Aid forms to us either via email: firstname.lastname@example.org or in the post to Finance Department, Wirral Churches’ Ark Project, The Grand Trunk, 43 Old Bidston Road, Birkenhead, CH41 8EL.
